A traditional Chinese rhyme for fun and language learning.
Illustrated by Kara Arnold
Music improvised by me on the guzheng 古筝 – a 21-string ancient Chinese zither, plucked, with more than 2500 years of history.
小白兔 白又白, cute white bunny oh so white;
xiǎo bái tù, bái yòu bái
两只耳朵竖起来，her two ears stand upright;
liǎng zhǐ ěr duǒ shù qǐ lái
爱吃萝卜爱吃菜 she loves to eat carrots she loves cabbages;
ài chī luó bo ài chī cài
蹦蹦跳跳真可爱 bouncing, dancing, she’s so cute.
